(Drudge) IRAN ACCUSES AMERICA OF FALSE FLAG… (The Sun) US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for the "blatant" attacks on two tankers which burst into flames in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday. The Pentagon released images and footage as supposed "proof" of Iranian involvement. (AP) explains The U.S. military on Friday released a video it said shows Iran’s Revolutionary Guard removing an unexploded limpet mine (A MAGNETIC MINE…) from the side of one of the oil tankers targeted near the Strait of Hormuz, suggesting the Islamic Republic sought to remove evidence of its involvement from the scene. Pompeo accused Iran of a "campaign" of "escalating tension."
But Iran blasted Pompeo’s “inflammatory remarks” and said they amounted to “another Iranophobic campaign”. (Uh-oh, Iranophobia??) Iran called the claims "unfounded and reckless" and accused the US of “warmongering” as part of a “disinformation campaign”. Iran's mission to the United Nations said in a statement, “The US and its regional allies must stop warmongering and put an end to mischievous plots and false flag operations in the region.” “Warning, once again, about all of the US coercion, intimidation and malign behaviour, Iran expresses concern over suspicious incidents for the oil tankers that occurred today.”
Hit by FLYING OBJECTS? (CBS News) The Japanese oil tanker owner seems to dispute the US account of the Gulf of Oman attack. He said Friday that sailers (they weren’t sailing, at least not with wind, yet they’re called sailors?) sailors saw “flying objects” before it was hit, suggesting it may not have been mines. CBS says the Japanese tanker was “attacked twice” (I guess that means hit twice?) on Thursday. Company president Yutaka Katada said Friday he believes the flying objects seen by the sailors could have been bullets. He denied any possibility of mines or torpedoes because the damage was above the ship's waterline. He called reports of a mine attack "false."
(Drudge) Huckabee Sanders steps down… President Trump tweeted: “After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas.... ....She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas - she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!”
Sarah Sanders tweeted: “I am blessed and forever grateful to @realDonaldTrump for the opportunity to serve and proud of everything he’s accomplished. I love the President and my job. The most important job I’ll ever have is being a mom to my kids and it’s time for us to go home. Thank you Mr. President!” (She’s married and has 3 children.)
AP claims her tenure was marked by a breakdown in regular press briefings and questions about the administration’s credibility, as well as her own. Trump said he’s encouraging her to run for governor when she returns home to Arkansas, where her father once held the job. At an unrelated White House event, Trump described Sanders as a “warrior” as he called her to the stage. Sanders, appearing emotional, said serving Trump has been “the honor of a lifetime” and pledged to remain one of his “most outspoken and loyal supporters.”
Jay from SD asked if Jesse was gonna be the new press sec! Contenders to replace… (Wash. Examiner) One person named deputy White House press secretary Hogan Gidley as the "likely pick." But the person said Tony Sayegh, a Treasury Department spokesman might be the "best pick." Other options include Morgan Ortagus, a spokeswoman at the State Department, and Stephanie Grisham, a spokeswoman for first lady Melania Trump. Many other candidates are looked at by D.C. people: Kellyanne Conway, Ainsley Earhardt, Katie Pavlich, Kayleigh McEnany, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Laura Ingraham, etc. Haha.
(Drudge) TORONTO RAPTURE! WHO CARES, I DON’T. (ESPN) Toronto Raptors win their first professional basketball championship title in team history, beating the Golden State Warriors in Game 6 of the NBA finals. (I did report the other day that Warriors coach Steve Kerr [he white] wore a Vote for Our Lives anti-Second Amendment shirt sympathetic to the far-left March for Our Lives dumb kids who want gun control. So I’m glad he lost.)

(Drudge) PRESIDENT KARDASHIAN… (The Gateway Pundit) On Thursday President Donald Trump introduced Kim Kardashian to speak on so-called Criminal Justice Reform at the White house. “I’d like to invite up a very special guest and a powerful advocate not just for justice reform but just a good person. And I hear she’s starting to study law. She’s also one of the most successful people in the entertainment business. Soon she will be one of the most successful lawyers. I hate to tell it to all of my lawyers back there. But, I knew her father and I tell you she’s got good genes. That I can tell you.Good genes for everything and she’s been a real friend and her husband has been a real friend of mine.”
Kim Kardashian said, “I want to thank the president for really standing behind this issue and seeing the passion he’s had for criminal justice.” Ivanka Trump tweeted: “Thank you @KimKardashian for your passionate advocacy of CJR and Second Chance hiring!” Conservative journalist and activist Jack Posobiec tweeted: Kim Kardashian for Press Sec?
(Drudge) Ronan Farrow Blasts Media Crowd: I See Liars… Ronan’s the one who kicked off the #MeToo movement with his reporting on allegations against that Hollywood guy Harvey Weinstein. He left NBC News after they declined to pick up his story on Weinstein. The Pulitzer Prize winner and New Yorker writer accepted a Mirror Award for media reporting from Syracuse University Thursday for his stories on supposed sexual misconduct at CBS, including allegations that toppled CBS corporation’s former leader, Leslie Moonves. Farrow in his acceptance speech saluted journalists who work to keep the media honest and transparent, but also said, “I can see people who have lied to protect power.” He declined to name names.
Ronan Farrow is the son of actress / activist Mia Farrow, and Woody Allen(?) or Frank Sinatra? Woody Allen says he paid Ronan’s child support but they’re estranged. Mia was married to Frank Sinatra for a couple years decades before Ronan was born. She once said, supposedly “joking,” that Frank Sinatra could possibly be his father!
Some woman won a trophy for reporting on white nationalists, and she scolded media execs for failure to be more diverse in hiring. Some guy at Buzzfeed who reported on the Philippines drug war urged media companies to be more accepting of unions. CNN president Jeff Zucker (laughably) said his job is not to pick sides but to tell the truth. They’re one of the primary culprits in mass TDS. “I am proud to stand up for the truth,” he said. “I am proud to stand up for the press. We are certainly not the enemy of the people.” (YES YOU ARE!)
(Drudge) New York ends religious exemption to vaccine mandates… (AP) Democrats in New York eliminated the religious exemption to vaccine requirements for schoolchildren Thursday, as the nation’s worst measles outbreak in decades prompts states to reconsider giving parents ways to opt out of immunization rules…. similar exemptions are still allowed in 45 states, but several state legislatures are considering eliminating the waiver. “I’m old enough to have been around when polio was a real threat,” said Assemblywoman Deborah Glick, D-Manhattan. “I believe in science.... Your personal opinions, which may be based on junk science, do not trump the greater good.” Gov. Cuomo said, “The science is crystal clear: Vaccines are safe, effective and the best way to keep our children safe…. I understand freedom of religion. I have heard the anti-vaxxers’ theory, but I believe both are overwhelmed by the public health risk.”
Orthodox Outrage… (NY Post) Anti-vaxxers lose minds after religious exemption bill gets pushed through. Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, the bill’s sponsor, got cursed out and flat-out threatened at one point. “We’ll be back for you Jeffrey!” shouted one man in Orthodox religious garb. “Motherf–ker!” screamed another person. “Shame!”

(Drudge) More than 1,000 illegals released into USA -- every day! (Breitbart) DHS Frees 8.5K Illegal Aliens in Eight Days; 204.5K Released in Half a Year. Federal data shows that from June 4 to June 11, Dept. of Homeland Security released 8,500 border crossers and illegal aliens, more than 1,000 per day, into various American communities across the interior of our country!
As I’ve reported many times: The catch and release process often entails federal immigration officials busing border crossers into nearby border cities — as well as flying them into the interior of the country — and dropping them off with the hope they show up for their immigration and asylum hearings. The overwhelming majority of border crossers and illegal aliens are never deported from the country once they are released into the U.S.
Today, there are anywhere between 11 and 22 million (some say 30M or more) illegal aliens living across the country — the majority of which are concentrated in states like California, New York, Florida, Texas, and Illinois.
Since December 21, 2018, DHS has released a total of 204,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the country, with all of them going to four American communities: San Diego, California; Phoenix, Arizona; El Paso, Texas; and San Antonio, Texas. San Antonio, for example, has been forced to absorb nearly 80,000 border crossers and illegal aliens in less than six months. El Paso, similarly, has had to take in 72,500 border crossers and illegal aliens, while 37,000 have been dropped off in Phoenix and another 19,000 dropped off in San Diego.
Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan admitted weeks ago to Congress that “100 percent” of adult border crossers arriving at the southern border with children are being released into the U.S. and eventually given work permits to take American jobs. OUTRAGEOUS!
BTW: Every year, the U.S. admits about 1.2 million legal immigrants with the overwhelming majority, nearly 70 percent, coming through the process known as “chain migration,” whereby newly naturalized citizens are allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign nationals to the country (whom they call family members or something).
(Drudge) Cartel drone found near TX border… (Conservative Review) Mexican drug cartels are weaponizing mass migration to tie down our border agents so they can bring in dangerous people and contraband, but they are also apparently monitoring the migrant flow in real time with spy drones! Border Patrol recovered a cartel drone on Sunday that crashed in La Grulla, Texas, near the river in the Rio Grande Valley. The drone was lying in the brush. The lights on the drone were blacked out with electrical tape, so as to not be seen at night. This area has recently seen an influx of illicit trafficking. The agent said, “The cartel is investing in technology to guide groups to a stash house or to a ‘load driver’ waiting to pick them up.”
First, they started giving the illegals smart phones equipped with land navigation apps and map overlays, along with battery chargers and a compass. This cut out the need for a ‘guide.’ Now, with the use of drones, the cartel can see us for miles. They can direct the groups of illegals away from agents and have the load driver go to them or choose a different stash house. They were already at an advantage with the amount of U.S. citizen [smuggling scouts]. Now they can direct movement from above in a 360-degree view and pinpoint accuracy, even in the thick brush or dense sugar cane. There is nowhere an agent can approach the group without being seen.” AMAZING! Just the previous Sunday, the agent said there were 347 “got aways” in one Texas County!
(Drudge) Trans migrants pose challenge… (OBAMAAA! I can still hear the voice of one transgender illegal alien activist.)
